Robotic takedown of the left internal mammary artery and direct off-pump anastomosis to the left anterior descending artery through small thoracotomy incisions can be done safely with minimal morbidity and is associated with decreased blood loss, decreased ventilatory requirements, less intensive care unit stay, and less overall length of stay. It should be considered as an alternative to percutaneous angioplasty and stenting for those with isolated left anterior descending artery disease.
